This strain of Zimbabwe Rocks Lithobates is imported from Germany. This fish shows great color. They color up sooner, around 2.5 inches, than the classic Zimbabwe Rocks Strain, and often show a wider yellow blaze on the head than the classic version of this fish. Males are blue with a wide yellow blaze on the head and yellow on the dorsal fin. Some males show yellow on the body as well. A few may obtain a more orange color on their blaze and dorsal fin with age.
